Sun Pacific, marketer of Cuties-brand clementines, plans to grow export sales, naming two employees who will lead that charge.

The company has hired Brian Autenrieth as director of export sales and Chris Srisinthorn has been promoted to export sales manager.

Autenrieth returns to Sun Pacific after a brief stint with a startup air freight forwarding company, according to a news release. For three generations, his family has owned fresh fruit exporter Autenrieth Co. (AutCo.), Agoura Hills, Calif.

Srisinthorn has been promoted to his role, and he will work with Autenrieth, managing the day-to-day operations of the export program. Srisinthorn will also promoted the company’s Air Chief, PureSpect and Vintage Sweet labels, according to the release. He has been with Sun Pacific for 12 years, most recently as operations manager for sales.

“With the addition of Brian and the promotion of Chris, our export program will expand our portfolio to include our new Air Chief proprietary grape varieties and exploration of exporting our organic grapes to Asia,” Sun Pacific President Barney Evans said in the release. “Our new export team has the knowledge, training, and relationships to deliver superior customer service to all our trading partners overseas.”
